market has the effect of fractals on me.

let me tell you why.

·

**bicocacolors**has cauliflowers of the romanescu kind on her blog at the moment. if there's one thing {one of many} which fascinates me no end, it is ungraspable mathematics, as in...

**fractals**.

*i fell in love with*

**fibonacci**'s numbers in geneva, a long, long time ago.*{geneva in itself being a place of mystery, because of*

**cern**}·

where

*does*mathematical fascination kick in, i wonder.· · · · ·

that's what romanescu, and in a broader sense, market does to me. because when i'm market shopping and romanescu pops up, i just have to get me some.

PURE eye candy.

and maths.

It is a very pretty veggie....I made a flutter can't wait to show will let you know when I post it...inspired by you!

ReplyDeletehe you!

ReplyDeleteI gave you a sunshine award!

see my weblog

;^))

I sucked at maths, lucky for me I married a walking calculator!

ReplyDeletex

nature makes nice artwork --well with some help from people!--

ReplyDeletei'm not good with numbers, but since i do art, i usely can find the middle of my paper very well!

have a nice wednesday

I am equally obsessed with fractals and geometrics and am obsessing about them now for artworks. Lovely to see your new web page and store...I am very inspired.

ReplyDeletecheers, nick!

Deletehow

areyou doing? busy?n♥

Fascinating, the world of plants never fails to intrigue, living artwork, x

ReplyDeletePURE eye candy.

... ungraspable.

I totally agree my dear!

i have a similar fascination with the possibilities of math - i guess if you really love art you have to. too bad i have no short term memory! when i was in school i couldn't remember the first half of the equation by the time i got to the end of it!!!!!

ReplyDeleteLOVE anything that appears on those Franchi seed packets. they are so bodacious!

I still remember the first time I saw that vegetable - it was in Rome, where it's just called "cauliflower". What a wonderful vegetable, nothing like its pale cousin that is available at the grocery stores worldwide! And, hmm, mathematical fascination? Perhaps I haven't eaten enough romanescos~ :)

ReplyDeleteIt's too pretty to eat!

ReplyDeleteSo, not only are you poetic and artistic, you're mathematically inclined as well! I'm in awe :)

ReplyDeleteI like your choice to talk about the theme of this week. My husband is scientific and this cabbage is one of his favorite vegetables ... every time he speaks to me of Fibonacci :)

ReplyDeleteI'm with you every step of the way. The Fibonacci stuff is fascinating (and steamed romanescos are yummy).

ReplyDeleteMy father-in-law used to get all lyrical when he saw one - he was a biology teacher and recognized mathematical patterns all over nature.

Haha, fantastic. Vegetables, maths and beauty ... a wonderful combination.

ReplyDeleteThe thing I most enjoyed about studying maths at school was knowing there was a clear result to be achieved.

I shall be wishing some romanescu pops up at my marketplace. :)

Funny coincidence! I made some investigation on Fibonacci, logarythmic spirals and the golden numbers for my history of art class last week. We're studying neoclassicism now and the mathematical organisations of compositions in artworks, and it's quite amazing how obsessive artists could be with maths...

ReplyDeleteDid you know nautilus, sunflower seeds or daisy seeds grow according to logarythmic spirals? That is, in fibonacci successions.

And plant leaves, and tree branches also do.

And flowers like roses always have a fibonacci number of petals
